Kids Friendly Decor!

Creativity (n.) – The ability to transcend traditional ideas and to create meaningful new ones. If you’re looking to redesign your child’s room, create a dream space which is creative! Always keep an open mind when exploring fun and playful colours, décor elements and furniture!

Decorating a kid’s bedroom doesn’t mean that you must compromise on the style quotient. The process opens a whole new world of fun and exciting possibilities! Use décor elements that add to the learning of a child for instance geometric or alphabetical shapes and patterns for your floors or walls… It’s the perfect excuse to go bold, whimsical or chic depending on your little one’s personality!

Your kid spends most of their time in the bedroom, either sleeping, playing video games, watching TV or doing homework. Therefore, the room should cater to your child’s needs that will serve as an inspiration for designing the bedroom. The bedroom should also be designed as per who your child would want to be and the innocence of the kid. It should be stylish, practical, fun and most importantly, super cosy.

Here are a few tips which will provide you with design inspiration for the most stylish and on-trend kid’s spaces -

1) Effective Space Utilization

While designing a children’s room it is essential to make it feel spacious! Think about the future needs of your child too, since you won’t always renovate your house. As your child grows their room will need space for a study table, storage, games etc. Utilize space effectively by shopping for multi-functional furniture that can provide storage options. For instance, a desk space that has hidden storage facility or storage beds with built-in drawers and roll-out containers, or a display stand where toys can be showcased, which once the child grows up can be used as a bookshelf too.

2) Addition of Fun Accessories

Layer up and accessorize your kid’s bedroom with decorative printed bedding and bold, playful colours to add a bright and cheerful vibe to the room! Adding décor items like buntings make for cute decorative elements in a child’s bedroom.

Another interesting way to accessorize your kid’s space is to add wallpapers, patterned floorings, decorative curtains, monochrome block printed throws, soft toys and innovative wall hangings!

3) Use of Playful colours
Make your kid’s bedroom stand out by using vivacious and attractive colours and patterns on the walls! Playful colours with fun patterns like animal motifs and abstract designs are an apt choice for your children’s room. BFT has striking colour options that bring life to any space instantly. Blue Lagoon with a shade of white complement each other beautifully as you can see in the image below. These wall tiles placed in the bedroom of a private apartment in Mumbai give the space an exuberant vibe!

Another lovely colour option for your kid’s bedroom is to add a pop of sunshine yellow that works well against plain white walls.
Tip: If you have a small room, use lighter shades, since these create a wider, more open appearance.

4) Introduction of Abstract Patterns
The love for asymmetric patterns creates an artistic look, be it a boy’s bedroom or a girl’s! The child’s room is a perfect place to explore new ideas and vibrant colours. The Borobu pattern from our designer collaboration – BFT+ range seen in the image below creates quite a statement! If you’re opting for a whimsical look in your kid’s room, the BFT+ Range – Japanese Line is calling out to you!

5) Creating that Warm and Fuzzy Feeling

A zone where you can cosy up and cuddle with your little one and read them their favourite bed time story or sing them to sleep with a lullaby. A room that emanates the ultimate warm and fuzzy feeling! You can achieve such an environment by using decor elements like a blackboard, bean bag, stuffed toys, artistic side lamps or hanging ceiling lights, for instance, star shape lights or lanterns that help you give the room a snug feel and comfy vibe.

You can also create a themed décor for your kid’s room, ex. a superman theme for a boy or a princess theme for a girl…creating a delightful little wonderland of their own!

A helpful tip - Combining patterns that are complementary in colour helps bring them together in an unconventional way. It’s a fantastic way to create an intentionally vibrant look that doesn’t appear messy! If you’re opting to re-do the interiors of your kid’s bedroom– tiles add a great statement, especially the abstract or geometrical pattern. At BFT you can customize your floors by mixing and matching two or more different patterns together to create a playful look! These decorative patterns make an excellent choice for floorings, offering both beauty and durability.

"A child's bedroom should be a haven, a space they love spending time in, where they feel safe as they drift off to sleep and comforted by what they see when they wake up in the morning" according to interior designer Carolyn Feder.
